BPF having medical at Burnley
Bailey Peacock-Farrell is currently having his medical ahead of a move to Premier League side Burnley.
That’s the latest update on the move from BBC journalist Adam Pope.
He delivered the news on his Twitter account on Thursday afternoon with the 22-year-old set to play understudy to Nick Pope.
Tom Heaton, who was the club’s number one in the second-half of last season, has joined Aston Villa.
I understand BPF is undergoing a medical today ahead of a proposed move to Burnley. #lufc

It leaves Marcelo Bielsa with former Real Madrid keeper Kiko Casilla as his number one, and two stand-ins with very little experience.
Will Huffer has made one first-team appearance for Leeds, against Bristol City in a 2-0 win last season.

Kamil Miazek hasn’t played for the Leeds senior team but played brilliantly for the Under-23s last season and was the penalty-saving hero in the PDL play-off final against Birmingham.
It remains to be seen whether Leeds get a replacement in before the window shuts next Thursday but one of Huffer and Miazek is likely to be on the bench against Bristol City on Sunday. Miazek would seem to have the most chance of getting the nod at this stage.
